The "International Forum on Renewable Energy Certificate Scheme 2017 - System Planning and Experience Sharing" was hosted by Bureau of Energy (BOE) in GIS MOTC Convention Center today, and the event attracts nearly 150 people's attendance. BOE invites the representatives of Taiwan Institute of Economic Research (TIER), Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI), Taiwan Renewable Energy Alliance (TRENA), Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), Germany Environment Agency (UBA) to make keynote speeches on "Policy and System Planning" and "Practical Experience Sharing" for Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) Scheme.

Chun-Li Lee, the Deputy Director General of BOE, mentions in the opening remarks that the amendment of "The Electricity Act" has deregulated the renewable electricity market in Taiwan, and renewable energy generation industries can sell its electricity to customers directly, via the grid maintained by Taiwan Power Company, or through renewable energy retail industries. REC Scheme, as a way to prove sources of green power, may assist in the development of renewable electricity market in Taiwan. BSMI is now drafting the contents of REC Scheme, and planning to issue the first certificate in the near future. BOE, as the competent authority of energy, would provide relevant professional opinions, and work with BSMI in introducing the scheme to Taiwan.

The presentation topics in the morning session of the forum include "Policies and Strategies for Promoting Renewable Energy in Taiwan" by TIER, and "Taiwan Renewable Energy Certification Mechanism Planning" by BSMI. While the afternoon session is opened by TRENA, and TRENA talks about expectations of REC Scheme from NGOs. Jennifer Martin, the Executive Director of CRS, shares the trend of voluntary renewable energy markets growth in the United States, and provide some suggestions to Taiwan. After that, Michael Marty, the Head of Register of Guarantees of Origin for Electricity from Renewable Energy Sources, UBA, analyzes the competing relationship between FIT Scheme and GO Scheme in Germany via video conference.

BOE explains that the purpose of this event is to build effective communication channels between those who attend to Taiwan's renewable energy policies. Therefore, in addition to inviting governmental agencies involved in relevant issues, think tanks, environmental groups, inspection companies, renewable energy generation industries, business electricity users to the event, BOE also opens the online registration to the general public. It is hoped to integrate the opinions of renewable energy development policies from the public so that the Electricity Industry Reform and Energy Transition can be achieved.
